Default Patriots and Coaching decisions

I normally don't wish injuries on any team, but up 38 all the Patriots starters are still in and they are passing away. I hope Moss and Brady go down to teach Bellichek a lesson.

I have to agree that seems a poor choice. At some point you have to draw the line between being thorough and classless. I like the Patriots simply because they are lead by such excellent gameplanners, but running up the score past the point of what is necessary to ensure a W gets obnoxious.

Going for it on 4th and 1 from the 8 up 38 and then throwing a TD for a 45 point lead is classless no matter what league you are in. If I were the Redskins I would have late hit and laid out Brady and then pointed over at Bellichek. I don't have a problem with them continuing to try and run the offense, just use the second string.

The offense's job is to score points.

The defense's job is to stop them.

You don't want to get run up on by some team? Stop 'em then. You're professional football players too.

Maybe that's not in the 'Skins playbook, but this is the NFL, not Pop Warner. It's not important for everyone to go home feeling good about themselves. Sorry.

My guess is if you were on the other end of the loss you would probably be complaining as well.

perhaps we should grade them on a curve...or not mark any papers with red ink...or institute a mercy rule...perhaps we shouldn't take score anymore since, after all, "everyone is a winner". We shouldn't let the mean Pats hurt any teams feelings.

I have been. I didn't start watching the Patriots in 2001. I've seen my share of beat-downs, believe me. Does Refigerator Perry scoring a meaningless TD in the '85 Super Bowl ring a bell? That made it 46-3, I think. With millions of people watching.

And for the record, no. I wouldn't complain. The Redskins had three hours on the same field. Complainers are worse than losers.

Default Re: Patriots and Coaching decisions

Belichick: "I remember being on that side. When I was coaching defense it was my job to keep the score down, not theirs. When you're playing defense it's your job to stop them. It's not [the offense's] job to not score. It's like I tell the offense, what the [bleep] do you think I send you guys out there for? To punt? We have a punt team for that. That's not your job. Your job is to go out there and score points. If you come off the field and you haven't scored points you haven't done your job."

I agree 100% with this. Why send the offense onto the field if you don't expect them to score? If the defense can't stop them, that's their problem. They didn't do their job.

Matt Cassel came in and scored a late TD to put the game further out of reach. It's not like Brady was out there the whole time trying to get as many yards and TDs as possible. Who can complain about a team whose second string is so good that it can score points on its own? They should be commended.

I feel ever so sorry for grown millionaires getting embarassed because they are being outperformed at their job, which happens to be a game. I don't feel bad when i put up 100 on madden, and i don't feel bad when the patriots beat everyone within inches of tears. Tom Brady's new official nickname is FTS...which stands for ******* the spread. If you put the line at 40, i still wouldn't take the points. The man is just insane. he's thrown for 30 tds already. He actually looks pissed off when his special teams scores and he can't go out and run the offense.

Uh-oh. Randall Godfrey is mad at us.

"That was blatant disrespect. I hope we can see them again, definitely."



After yesterday, I bet the Pats hope so too Randall.

These aren't junior high B teamers whos talent levels vary from squads of 12 year olds facing off against a bunch of grown hairy ignorant men.

The Pats built their team and their FO just like everyone else in the NFL and for the Pats to fling the ball until the end of the game and then get flogged by a bunch of arm chair qb's is assinine. If I was at that game I would have been PO'ed if my team was having to run the ball up the gut every play of the third quarter until games end just to save my opponents face. The Redskins were more guilty of giving up early than the Pats were of running up the score.

This is the NFL folks, if your team is good enjoy it, if they suck then there is always next year.

I wish our players thought like that, Don't even worry about what the other units are doing, Offense needs to focus on scoring points and bruising people, and the defense needs to focus on not letting people score points ... and bruising ALOT of people...


Edit: Oh yea, and the most accurate long-snapper in the league needs to focus on getting the damn ball where its supposed to go, not try to make a field goal by himself. Love ya Pittman Just once I would like to see Pittman long snap it to himself, followed by him long snapping it 50 yards for the FG!

after the spying b.s., I think there is a huge chip on every NE player and coach, and they have something to prove to the rest of the league and themselves.

it was done against Miami and i have no problem with it. if they can't stop them, they deserve it. sorry, that's the way it is.

as far as i'm concerned, the only argument you can make from this if keeping Brady in there that long is a smart move. but i got no problem with them throwing and scoring as much as possible. as belichick said, the goal is to score on every possession. much like the goal of the defense is to stop the other team from scoring on every possession. period.

Of course he's not. But I think this is the 3rd board where I've seen someone claim he walked off the field without a handshake. One of the networks maybe reported it that way? I don't know.
